Harold's Get Well Fund

Raised by 29 people in 8 months
If you're stopping by, you've probably noticed that there's been a friendly face missing in the 8th AMU recently. Harold has developed four fast moving bacterial infections in his right foot, and had to be hospitalized and have emergency surgery on his foot He has since had 2 more operations trying to save his foot, but the infection has been too aggressive and he will have to have his forefoot amputated. He will be out of work for a few months while he heals and learns to walk again with a prosthetic. Normally, we wouldn't ask for much when we need it, but any little bit will help us get through this until he can get back to work. Harold is our families sole income provider and we'd like to thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide us.

Just wanted to send a quick update to everyone. Harold has been healing wonderfully, but we have gone as far as we can go on it's own. The doctor feels that he is far enough along that it is time to do the next surgery, the skin graft, to finish covering over the still exposed part of his foot. The doctor will remove some of the skin from his thigh to use to cover the foot.

Harold will be admitted this evening to be prepped and ready for surgery first thing in the morning. If all goes well he should be able to come home Tuesday night or Wednesday. Then the sit and keep off the foot begins. Anyone that knows Harold knows that he is already complaining about it, lol. But, according to the doctor this is the most important part, as he HAS to keep all pressure off the foot to allow time for the graft to take, otherwise we will have to do this all over again.

So he will be off work for the next week at least, maybe longer, all depends on how fast the graft settles in.

We want to thank everyone for all their support through all of this so far. Without each and every one of you, I really dont know how we would have made it. Thank you. ❤❤❤

Just wanted to update everyone on Harold's progress. He is healing up good and doctor has been pleased with the progress he is making. He is in a walking boot now and able to get along without a cane or crutches, just a little slower. Thank you to everyone that has helped us all these months, we couldn't have done it without you all. Thank you!

We just wanted to share with everyone how appreciative we are for everyone's donations, thoughts, and support through this time. It really has gotten us through. Harold is still healing a bit more each week and it is amazing to see the body healing and generating more skin and muscle tissue. We still have a long way to go and some days are still a struggle to keep blood sugars and swelling down, but we just keep moving forward. Again thank you all.
current progress, looking better

We just wanted to give everyone an update, and to once again thank each and everyone that donated. If it wasn't for each of y'all I honestly don't know how we would have made it through this time. Harold was able to return to light desk duty at his job. We still make 1-2 trips a week to see his doctors down in El Paso and for wound care, this will be our new normal for the next 6-9 months as his foot heals. Last week we did have a bit of infection trying to crop back up, but we were able to get it treated right away, but the doctor is still watching it closely. One of Harold's coworkers came over today and helped to make some repairs and adjustments to his truck so he can start driving again. We are slowly finding ways to adapt as he is healing and just taking one day at a time. Again, thank you all so very much.
